We are delighted to confirm that Kurt Janson the Director of the Tourism Alliance will be presenting the Alliance’s session at British Destinations’ annual conference in Southport 19/20-21 June 2016. Kurt’s presentation, now programmed to take place 14:50 – 15:35 during the opening Monday afternoon sessions (13:45- 17:15) on 20th June of this two day event, will cover key tactical and strategic industry lobbying activities and review the current geopolitical environment in which UK domestic and international tourism operates.
Kurt’s session follows presentations from our hosts Sefton Council/ Visit Southport. These sessions led by Mark Catherall Service Manager Tourism will look at the manner and means of destination management in the principle resort of Southport and the linked rural and urban areas of the wider borough, with an emphasis on the commercialization of the delivery of key tourism services and events; or put more simply: how to keep effective destination management functioning in an environment of public sector austerity.
